It was a simpler time, people just hid thing, didn't talk about it, or ignored it. They were just as jade, had as many problems as we do today. But off my soapbox and back to the show. This was really fun to watch and makes me hungry for peanut butter for some reason. If you allergic to peanuts be warned!!!

America was simpler in those days, able to accept and appreciate people and activities without being so judgemental. So many people today are jaded. Young people believe creativity began with their generation.
